This project can only come to life through the support of community donors, those who believe in this Village and who know that, together, we can shape a public golf club where everyone in Glencoe can have meaningful experiences for generations to come. This project is rooted in the vision that the people of Glencoe have for our community’s future.
Glencoe has always been a civic-minded community, with thoughtful investments in spaces and projects like the Chicago Botanic Gardens, Writers Theatre, our revitalized downtown, the nationally recognized Historical Society, top-notch park district properties, and so many others. With every new project, Glencoe becomes a more vibrant and interconnected Village, strengthening its status as a premiere destination for life and culture on the North Shore. This collective effort will enable us to create more of the meaningful experiences that make being a part of this community so special.
The golf club will enjoy the following enhancements:
Year-Round Facility Featuring :
• Conference/Meeting Room
• Private Party Space
• Winter Activities
• Facilities for Education and Youth Programs
• Certified Audubon Sanctuary Recognition
Full-Use Driving Range
A significant upgrade is planned for the driving range that would allow users to practice with drivers, fairway woods. The driving range will become a destination for golfers looking to practice with all of the clubs in their bag using the top notch all grass tee to practice their short game. Finally, a full-use range where you can hit every club in your bag!
Improving the Golf Experience/Short Game Practice Facility
A unique putting and short-game experience is being created that provides for both fun and serious practice options for golfers at Club. These practice enhancements are meant to complement the proposed clubhouse amenities, providing alternative fun areas of play that enhance and extend the user experience.
The short-game green would provide authentic practice options for chipping, pitching and bunker work that emulates the features of the existing golf course. This area would also be ideal for accommodating group lessons and/or junior clinics while maintaining full access to the golf course for the paying public users.
Golf Academy / Indoor Simulators and Training Center
The indoor golf experience is designed for year-round, all-weather, day-or-night golf play, practice or training. The experience is centered around golf simulators that feature championship golf courses or provide swing data that is crucial to improving your game. Leagues, hourly rental, and lessons will be available to extend the golf season to a year-round experience.
School Outreach Programs
For many years the Glencoe Golf Club has supported school programs. This initiative will continue to be one way our club can give back to the community. These school programs open up the possibility for kids of all ages to come enjoy our amazing facility.
